The sky of Seoul was lightened up by drones on Friday evening, showing messages of hope amid COVID-19.

As being reported, over 300 drones fly over the Olympic Park, creating the shape of the coronavirus along with messages of encouragement, amid the coronavirus battle in Seoul, the capital city of South Korea.

According to the government, it was meant to give “comfort and hope” to residents enduring the coronavirus pandemic.

The light show featured hundreds of devices lined up in synchronized light displays, forming colorful images of people wearing masks and spelling out slogans encouraging the government’s “Korean New Deal” program to rebuild the economy.

“I hope this drone show serves as an opportunity to convey joy and hope for a moment to our people experiencing pandemic fatigue,” Kim Sang-do, deputy minister for aviation policy, said in a statement.

The show was designed to thank residents for their efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the statement added.

A similar show, but first of its kind was held earlier in July, over the city’s Han River but it was done without any notice, as organizers wanted to prevent large crowds from gathering.
